This is a painting I did a few days ago and I've been waiting for it to dry so I could put the hanging wire on the back. I love oil paint but I hate waiting for things, so it's a challenge for me to be patient and not mess it up by touching it when it's wet. This one is 9x12" and I wanted to try drawing with a graphite pencil in the wet paint, so those little lines you see are graphite that's sort of inscribed into the paint. It's a pretty rough line because of the texture of the canvas but I think I like the effect.
I'm trying some different things with my photos of these panel paintings, so the third photo is on top of my wooden flat file with a paper parasol that sits there and makes me happy. My scanner is still the best way to get a really accurate image but I'm having fun playing around with the camera and trying to convey the size and feel of the paintings.
And as you see from the title, this is my 100th post on this blog!
